BNE Reaches Ultimate Goal

We are very pleased to announce that after 2 years we have now reached that magic point where BNE – our archive of Brisbane independent electronic music production – has broken even as a project, and that this week we will be delivering on the project’s aim to donate all profits to the Brisbane Lord Mayor’s Charitable Trust, to assist the homeless and others in need in our city.

This is a direct outcome from the contribution and collaboration of all bands and artists appearing on BNE. Thank you!

We still have a handful of copies of the book+archive left: click here to obtain one of the final copies (+ 2 bonus Trans:Com CDs) before they run out forever.
